City of Philadelphia
Philadelphia or Philly is also known as the city of ‘Brotherly Love’. It is the home of the Flyers and the 76ers and is the second largest city on the United States’ East Coast. Remember Patti Labelle, Bill Cosby and Will Smith? They were all born and raised in Philly. Bill Cosby is an alumnus of our very own Temple University.
In the year 1976, Sylvester Stallone immortalized the city with the Rocky series. Sylvester Stallone was not the only one to choose Philly for a movie location, The Sixth Sense with Bruce Willis was filmed in South Philly as well as Philadelphia, starring Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington. In addition to its star power, Philly is home of ‘The Cheese steak’. There is nothing like a Geno’s cheese steak in South Philly.
In addition to producing celebrities and good cheese steaks, Philly is rich with culture and educational institutions. Ever heard of The Wharton School of Business? It is only the top business school in the country and part of the Ivy League family at University of Pennsylvania. Penn is considered to be one of the best universities in the country.
Historically, Philadelphia is the oldest and most significant city in the United States. It was founded and developed in 1682 by William Penn. The United States constitution was drafted and signed right there at Independence Hall, home of the Liberty Bell. Before Washington D.C., it was Philadelphia that was the capital of the United States.
If you happen to visit Philly, take a boat ride on the Delaware River or go shopping at The Franklin Mills Outlet Mall, whatever you choose to do, it will be an unforgettable experience. Who knows, you might run into Patti Labelle shopping or Will Smith driving down the street.
Philadelphia is also known for its famous saying “Philadelphia Lawyer”. According to Answers.com the Philadelphia Lawyer is a shrewd attorney, adept at dealing with legal technicalities, as in “It would take a Philadelphia lawyer to get him off”. This expression dates from the late 1700s and, as lexicographer Richard H. Thornton observed: “Why members of the Philadelphia bar should be credited with superhuman sagacity has never been satisfactorily explained.”
